This large, signed watercolor, pencil and ink graphic titled, Proposed Portable Altar And Lectern, is approximately 4 feet by 2.5 feet. This is the design document for a portable altar and lectern that was built and used at Concordia University for smaller chapel services held in the music building. While it has been professionally framed to prevent further deterioration, it was not stored well and the edges show considerable wear in some areas (see photo below).
